Kristine

A family friend lays dying tonight.

Kris was my Dad's girlfriend in the 1970s. She is an amazing strong woman, and a survivor both of the Warsaw ghetto and the Warsaw Uprising. She hid in plain sight after the ghetto in outer Warsaw incognito as a Catholic.

I knew bits and pieces of her story, but she didn't like talking much about it. But now, she has written an incredible book, and I encourage you all to read it. It is worth every penny of the $23 price.

Kris is in hospice right now, with her youngest son at her side. Please offer a kind thought for an easy and peaceful passing.
